Welcome to KFO coaching

In response to a survey of club members at the end of last year we will be running special sessions for club members to learn new skills and practice techniques with other members.

We will soon discuss the priorities that our members have, so please join us as soon as you can to be part of this. The emphasis is going to be on fun.

 

Orienteering events in 2022

KFO will be starting our programme of monthly orienteering events in March. Our coaching programme will start in February. If you can’t wait to get started on orienteering in 2022 then the Edinburgh University Orienteering Club’s big weekend might be what you need. They are putting on three days of orienteering 21st-23rd January. It starts with a night orienteering competition on the Friday evening followed by daytime orienteering on Saturday and Sunday. Full details are on the EUOC site.   

Please contact us if you would like advice on which events to enter or have any questions about the benefits that joining KFO can bring.

Orienteering and KFO

E Lomond E Lomond

 

Orienteering is an exciting foot race, often through forests, navigating from one point to another on a predefined course printed on an orienteering map. The aim is to navigate around all the points in the shortest time; the fun is in avoiding getting lost, in order to beat your rivals. All ages can take part, from age 2 to over 90 years.

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers (KFO) is a small club. We cover the whole of Fife, with members as far north as Gauldry, as far west as Saline and as far south as Dalgety Bay, and beyond. The club always welcomes beginners - no experience needed.

Orienteering can take place almost anywhere from the remotest forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It’s a great sport for anyone who just loves to be outdoors. It is also a very good way for runners, joggers and walkers to improve their navigation skills.

Not for nothing is orienteering sometimes known as ‘The Thought Sport’! Decisions are needed from even before reaching the Start of the course right through to punching the Finish. These decisions are usually based on information received from what can be seen on the ground, information received from the map, personal navigation skills, personal fitness, confidence in abilities and so on.

The best place to get started is at a local event, especially an introductory event near to you. At most events you can just turn up and have a go. You have to register and pay the fee and there will be someone at registration who will help guide you as what to do. When you get to the Start the adventure begins. We hope you enjoy the experience and will want to join KFO, see the Membership page.
